LIFE GROUP LA INC
April 5, 2012
Even before receiving the 2011 Volunteer of the Year Award from The Life Group, it is hard for me think to of many non-profits that have made such a difference in my life. The Life Group L.A. , in my opinion, defines itself as a community. And because it is a very inclusive community, so many people feel welcomed and served at the POZ Life seminars, the weekly emotional group meetings, and all the other events the group is involved with. I hope any of the readers of this message can share everything I feel is so special about The Life Group L.A. with me (and it's exceptional leader, Sunnie Rose). Many Hugs, David

It has been a long road for me to commit to a volunteer role at The Life Group LA. After being a client three years ago, I knew I wanted to give back in some way to the group. I volunteered for some hours at POZ Life weekends, volunteered at your Gay Rodeo and Gay Pride booths, raised money at Saddle Up LA, and eventually spent entire POZ Life weekends with the Tech Team. I got to know Sunnie, the Executive Director, and the other volunteers. I even found a best friend who I tragically lost in a still unexplained incident. I can’t think of another group I am more invested in than The Life Group L.A. Your board members and facilitators spent 36 hours with me over
two weeks and guided me to become a new emotional group facilitator for the Life Group L.A. I am humbled by the feedback they gave me. I am lifted up by the support I received and used to successfully complete the training. Thank you so much!
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
I've gained friends who are the best people in the world while helping people sort out the challenges of being affected by HIV.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
I'd find a way to give a decent salary to the Executive Director. She's literally working pennies for each hour she puts into this group.
